Poem -

Bulletproof...

Bulletproof...

Pull the trigger
Frightened figure
Control your anger
Before disaster,
You must have
Life to live,
You must have
Love to give,
Before your
Spirit fades,
Think, he's more
Than just a name,
I'll be there
For you
In times of
Lies and truth,
But know this...
We are never
Bulletproof!
Our chest is
Our vest,
Don't lose control
Or a concrete wall
Will be your
New home,
Put down the guns!
Enough is enough!
I'll say it again
Before you lay
Bleeding...

We're not bulletproof!ย

Bullets come in all forms and shapes and sizes and I like the way this is referred to here ๐Ÿ˜Š

Yeah, exactly Tina! All forms of been hit, we're not bulletproof, we get hit and you never know that could be the last one, so we should cherish and move forward making the right choices, if you know what I mean, thanks Tina ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’“

Ever attended an open mic night in one of your local coffee houses that sponsor poetry slams, Wayne?
If not you should.
This is the type of poetry that garners standing ovations in droves from the crowds of poetry-hungry patrons and participants alike.
Bravo, my friend, well done!

Wow! Thanks Dean, no never, I've thought about it quite often as late, I've looked up a couple in my area but it's just finding the time and confidence to do so, also finding more excuses not too Haha, I know I should be more active with my work, but my job family life is a hurdle to get over, never a problem but I just think I should have more faith in myself, thanks very much for your excellent comment! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘โ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜Š

This poem is very good, Wayne. Don't sell yourself short.
You'd really love it if you tried it. It's quite addictive, lol.

Hi Wayne....Prolific message....Butllets can be literal and kill, but also words can be weapons of destruction too...We need to be careful with our emotions that can lead to demise....because we are emotional beings that can be hurt and physical beings that can be killed...I love the theme....This is really good stuff!ย  xo ;)
